Audition Repertoire

All applicants are required to submit two videos. The first should feature a piece of your own choice, and the second video must be a scale from the RCM Level 2 or equivalent. Applications with only one video will not be accepted.


Consider choosing a piece that you have studied with a teacher and displays the best of your musical abilities. Music from the RCM/ABRSM repertoire is encouraged, but not required.

Rehearsals & Performance

Attendance at all weekly rehearsals is mandatory, and students are expected to come thoroughly prepared for each session. The rehearsals, lasting 45 minutes per week, require active participation and readiness to maximize the learning experience.

Students are allowed 2 missed ensemble rehearsals/school year. If missed rehearsals become more consistent than this, the student will be suspended from the ensemble.

All participants are required to perform with the ensemble in the upcoming Summer Recital. Additional performance opportunities may be offered each year.

Video Recording Instructions

  • Begin each video with a brief introduction, stating your name, age, and the piece you will be performing. 

  • Choose a quiet and well-lit space for recording to ensure that the video captures your performance clearly. 

  • Ensure that the recording is of high quality, with clear audio and video. Use a good quality camera or smartphone for recording. Position the camera so that both your hands and your face are visible.


  • Practice each piece thoroughly to showcase your technical proficiency and musicality. Get help from your teacher to maximize your preparation.

  • Pay attention to dynamics, phrasing, and overall expression to demonstrate a well-rounded performance.

  • In your recording, emphasize your interpretative skills, musical understanding, and personal flair.


Remember to practice, rehearse, and take the time to make sure your recordings reflect your true musical abilities. Good luck with your ensemble application!
